Abstract of Canteen Management System
The client uses MS Excel, and maintains their records, however it is not possible them to share the data
from multiple system in multi user environment, there is lot of duplicate work, and chance of mistake.
When the records are changed they need to update each and every excel file. There is no option to find
and print previous saved records. There is no security; any body can access any report and sensitive
data, also no reports to summary report. This Canteen Management System is used to overcome the
entire problem which they are facing currently, and making complete atomization of manual system to
computerized system.
The main limitation of the previous system of Canteen Management System:

The existing system only provides text-based interface, which is not as user-friendly as
Graphical user Interface.
Since the system is implemented in Manual, so the response is very slow.
The transactions are executed in off-line mode, hence on-line data capture and modification is
not possible.
Off-line reports cannot be generated due to batch mode execution.
Hence, there is a need of reformation of the system with more advantages and flexibility. The Canteen
Management System eliminates most of the limitations of the existing software. It has the following
The main objective of Canteen Management System is to enhance and upgrade the existing system
by increasing its efficiency and effectiveness. The software improves the working methods by
replacing the existing manual system with the computer-based system.
The Canteen Management System automates each and every activity of the manual system and
increases its throughput. Thus the response time of the system is very less and it works very fast.
The Canteen Management System provides the uses a quick response with very accurate information
regarding the users etc. Any details or system in an accurate manner, as and when required.
The software Canteen Management System has a very user-friendly interface. Thus the users will feel
very easy to work on it. The software provides accuracy along with a pleasant interface.Make the
present manual system more interactive, speedy and user friendly.

The transaction reports of the system can be retried as and when required. Thus, there is no delay in
the availability of any information, whatever needed, can be captured very quickly and easily.
Maintance Cost:
Reduce the cost of maintenance.
PROJECT CATEGORY: Relational Database Management System (RDBMS)
The project is entitled Canteen Management System,category RDBMS. Hence before discussing any
thing about the project Canteen Management System, a brief disscussion of related basic concept is
As a software developer or as a programmer,we are expected to design and develope any program that
works correctly, efficiently and the time is easy to be used by every person, who may or may not be well
versed wiht computer and its capabilities.
The Project is based on the Canteen Management System, Being the Information System it requires
extensive use of some Data base Management System to store, manipulate and handle the huge and
complex record, In RDBMS we can act various attributes with the database like editing the records,
Modifications Deletions of the records, View the records in various formats, listing the database etc.
Project can be categorized by their functioning and relation with their database and other tools can
categorize project. Since this project has been developed based on the Relation Data Base Management
System So Proposed system comes under RDBMS (Relational Database Management System) category,
as there is need to store and manipulate a huge amount of data related to patients as per various queries.
SYSTEM DESIGN(Introduction)
The systems objectives outlined during the feasibility study serve as the basic from which the work of
system design is initiated. Much of the activities involved at this stage is of technical nature requiring a
certain degree of experience in designing systems, sound knowledge of computer related technology and
through understanding of computers available in the market and the various facilities provided by the
vendors. Nevertheless, a system cannot be designed in isolation without the active involvement of the
user. The user has a vital role to play at this stage too. As we know that data collected during feasibility
study wills we utilized systematically during the system design. It should, however be kept in mind that
detailed study of the existing system is not necessarily over with the completion of the feasibility study.
Depending on the plan of feasibility study, the level of detailed study will vary and the system design
stage will also vary in the amount of investigation that still needs to be done. This investigation is
generally an urgent activity during the system. Sometimes, but rarely, this investigation may form a
separate stage between feasibility study and computer system design. Designing a new system is a
creative process, which calls for logical as will as lateral thinking. The logical approach involves
systematic moves towards the end product keeping in mind the capabilities of the personnel and the
equipment at each decision making step. Lateral thought implies encompassing of ideas beyond the
usual functions and equipment. This is to ensure that no efforts are being made to fit previous solutions
into new situations.
System Design Considerations
The system design process is not a step-by-step adherence of clear procedures and guidelines. Though,
certain clear procedures and guidelines have emerged in recent days,But still much of design work
depends on knowledge and experience of the designer.When designer starts working on system design,
he will face different type of problems. Many of these will be due to constraints imposed by the user or
limitations of the hardware and software available in the market. Sometimes, it is difficult to enumerate the

complexity of the problems and solutions there of since the variety of likely problems is so great and no
solutions are exactly similar. However, following considerations should be kept in mind during the system
designing phase:
Design Objectives
The primary objective of the design of course, is to deliver the requirements as specified in the feasibility
reports. In general the following design objectives should be kept in mind.
The system must be stable and can be operated by people with average.
This involves accuracy, timeliness and comprehensiveness to the system output.
It is desirable to aim for a system with a minimum cost subject to the condition that it must satisfy all the
The system should be modifiable depending on the changing needs of the user. Such modifications
should not entail extensive reconstructing or recreation of software. It should also be portable to different
computer systems.
This is very important aspect of the design and should cover areas of hardware reliability, fall back
procedures, physical security of data and provision for detection of fraud and abuse.
System design involves first logical design and then physical construction of the system. The logical
design describes the structure and characteristics of features, like the outputs, inputs, files, database and
procedures. The physical construction, which follows the logical design, produces actual program
software, files and a working system.
Major System Design Activities
Several development activities are carried out during structured design. They are database design,
implementation planning, system test preparation, system interface specification, and user
Database design
This activity deals with the design of the physical database. A key is to determine how the access paths
art to be implemented.
Program design: In conjunction with database design is a decision on the programming language to be
used and the flowcharting, coding, and debugging procedure prior to conversion. The operating system
limits the programming languages that will run of the system.
System and program test preparation. Each aspect of the system has a separate test requirement.
System testing is done after all programming and testing completed the test on system and program test
requirements become a part of design specifications a prerequisite to implementation.

In contrast to the system testing is acceptance testing, which puts the system through a procedure design
to convince the user that the proposed system will meet the stated requirements. Acceptance testing is
technically similar to system testing but politically it is different.
Design Process
The computer system design process is an exercise of specifying how, the system will work. It is an
iterative process, which is based on what the system will be do as shown in the feasibility report.Mainly,
following five parts have been included in the system design process
Output Design
The starting point of the design process is the proper knowledge of system requirements which will
normally be converted in terms of output.
Input Design
Once the output requirements have been finalized, the next step is to find out what data need to be made
available to the system to produce the desired outputs. The basic documents in which these data are
available need to be identified. If necessary, these documents may have to be revised or new documents
may have to be introduced.
File Design
Once the input data is captured in the system, these may to be preserved either for a short or long period.
These data will generally be stored in files in a logical manner. The designer will have to devise the
techniques of storing and retrieving data from these files.
Procedure Design
This step involves specifications of how processing will be performed. In this, there are two aspects:
Computer Procedure
The computer procedure will specify what functions will be carried out on computer, what will be
different programs and in what sequence the programs will be run.
Non-computer procedure
The non-computer procedure will specify the manual procedures for feeding input data, receiving
outputs etc.
Control Design
The control design indicates necessary procedures which will ensure correctness of processing, accuracy
of data, timely output etc. this will ensure that the system is functioning as per plan.
Development and Deployment Design
Major responsibilities include system Requirement Study, Preparing System Design Document, Preparing
the Program (Form) Specs, Peer Review of the Specs, Implement Quality procedures as per the QMS
Document, Documentation of SRS Revalidation & Design Documents, thorough grasping of the user

functionality and applying, approving the same in the project, Developing, Testing & Debugging of Forms,
User Training and Implementation of the module.
INPUT DESIGN(Introduction)
Once the analysis and design of the system has been done, it would be necessary to identify the data that
are required to be processed to produce the outputs. Input is one of the most expensive phases of the
operation of a computerized system and creates sometimes a major problem. Different type of problem
with a system can usually be traced back to faulty input design method needless to say, therefore, that
the input data are the lifeblood of a system and have to be analyzed and designed with utmost care and
consideration. Input design features can ensure the reliability of the system and generate correct reports
form the accurate data. The input design also determines whether the user can interact efficiently with the
Elements of Input Data
Inaccurate input data are the most common cause of errors in data processing. Errors entered by data
entry operators can be controlled by input design. Input data are collected and organized into groups of
similar data. Once identified, appropriate input media are selected for processing.
Input Data
The goal of designing input data is to make data entry as easy, logical and error free from errors as
possible. In entering data, operators need to know the following:

The allocated space for each field.

Field sequence, which much match that in the source document.
The format in which data fields are entered for example, filling out the date field is required
through the edited format mm/dd/yy.
When we approach input data design, we design the source document. Let us elaborate on
each step.
Source Documents
Source data are captured initially on original paper or a source document. For example, a cheque written
against an account is a source document. When it reaches the bank, it is encoded with special magnetic
ink character recognition so that a reader that is part of the information system of the bank can process it.
Therefore, source documents initiate a processing cycle as soon as they are entered into the system.
Source documents may be entered into the system from punch cards, from diskettes, or even directly
through the keyboard.
A source document should be logical and easy to understand. Each area in the form should be clearly
identified and should specify for the user what to write and where to write it.A source document may or
may not be retained in the proposed system. Thus, each source document may be evaluated in terms
of.Its continued use in the proposed system,The extent of modification for the proposed system &
Replacement by an alternative source document.
Input Design Guidelines
The design of input play very significant role in getting the correct output. It covers al phases of input from
creation of initial data (original recording) to actual entering the data to the system for processing. The
input design is the link that ties the information system into the world of its users. Some features of design
may vary depending on whether the system is batch-oriented or on-line. Here, we will discuss the various
objectives of input design. They focus on:

Controlling amount of input

Avoiding delay
Avoiding errors in data
Avoiding extra steps
Keeping the process simple
Each of the five objectives of input design is briefly discussed below:
Controlling Amount of Data
An effective design controls the quantity of data for input for the following reasons:
Firstly, data preparation and data entry operations depend on people. Since labor costs are high, the cost
or preparing and entering data is also high. It is quite evident, then that reducing data requirements mean
lowering costs through reduced labor expense.
Secondly, the input phase of computing can be slow process and take many times longer than that
needed by computers to carry out their tasks. In fact, the computer itself may sit idle until data is prepared
and input for processing. By reducing input requirements, the analyst will speed the entire process from
data capture to processing to provide result to users.
Avoiding Delay
When processing is delayed owing to data preparation or data entry, the cause is called a bottleneck.
Avoid bottlenecks when designing input should always be one of the objectives of the analyst.
Avoiding Errors in Data
The third objective deals with errors. In one sense, the rate at which errors occur is dependent on the
quantity of data. Since the lower the amount of data is inputted, there are fewer opportunities for the error
to occur.
Firstly, the analyst can reduce this number by reducing the volume of data dust must be entered for each
Secondly, the analyst can also affect error rates of an operation through design. The manner in which
data must be entered can reduce the chance of errors.
Still, a third aspect of error control is the need to detect errors when they do occur. Checks and balances
in the data entry programs, called input validation techniques, also detect errors input.
OUTPUT DESIGN (Introduction)
Presenting the data processed by a computer-based information system in an attractive and usable form
has become very essential these days success and acceptance of a system to some extent depends on
good presentation. Therefore, system analyst must know fully how to design output report in an attractive
way. Many new output devices are being introduced in the market because of recent development in
computer technology. System analyst must be aware of these new technologies and try to use these new
output devices if possible. Currently, excellent graphic displays are widely available. Speech output
systems are also fast emerging.
There are three main reasons why outputs from the computer are required. They are:
For communication to the persons concerned.
For re-input to the computer for being connected with other data and further processing.
For permanent storage.
Types of Output:

Outputs of a system can take different forms. The most common are reports, displays on screen, printed
forms etc. the outputs also vary in terms of their contents, type of stationery. Frequency and timing etc.
besides, due consideration also need to be given as to who will use the output and for what purpose. All
these points must be kept in mind while designing outputs so that the objectives of the system are met in
the best possible way.
Outputs of a data-processing system can be placed into two categories:
Application Output
Operating Output
Application Output
These are the outputs desired out of the system to meet its objectives. These are of three types:

Output as a basis for decision-making. This type of output is generally required by

management for decision-making purposes.
Output as a requirement to meet a functional objective. Invoices, Excise Gate Pass, Purchase
Orders are the examples of such output.
Statutory outputs: All organization is required to produce a certain amount of reports and
forms as required by law.
Operating Output
These outputs are mainly generated for use of EDP staff and give various indications as to how the
system operates. System logs, error messages, status indicators etc. are the examples of such output.
These types of output are not concerned for the users.
It may help collecting perfect management in details. In a very short time, the collection will be obvious,
simple and sensible. It will help a person to know the management of passed year perfectly and vividly. It
also helps in current all works relative to College. It will be also reduced the cost of collecting the
management & collection procedure will go on smoothly.
The present project has been developed to meet the aspirations indicated in the modern age. An attempt
has been made through this project to do all work ease & fast. It provide current add, Update, MoveNext,
MovePrevious, MoveLast, Find & Delete all facilities to accomplish the desired objectives. The facility
Include in this project and the suggested activities have been organized to impart knowledge & develop
skill & attitude in the College official works.
